'Louder Than Words' Upcoming Video Aubrey (Po) Powell is currently in Kazakhstan working on a music video for the only song on 'The Endless River' that has lyrics 'Louder Than Words'. The video will be in the style of the 'Marooned' video, this time filmed by the half deserted Aral Sea (part of the former Soviet Union). The video will contain children, ships and some shots of David & Nick (filmed in England). Po is currently in his hotel room in Kazakhstan editing the video which will be available on YouTube (and probably on this site) on 15th November. (Thanks for the heads up to several sources)
 
The Final Cut? Recently Roger Waters attended the Long Island Music Hall of Fame ceremony to induct his long time friend Ron Delsener into the Hall Of Fame. However Roger turned up with a nasty gash over his right eye. He jokingly told the ceremony about how he got into a fight with a bottle of tequila the night before - "and the bottle won." He was at the New York Presbyterian Hospital/Columbia emergency room until 5 a.m., but he still made it hours later to the event to give Live Nation’s Ron Delsener (whom he calls Uncle Ronny) an award. The truth of the matter though is that Roger actually fell in the bathroom at home, hitting his head, and was knocked unconscious. (Click on the picture to enlarge) All reports say he is fine now though.
 
David Gilmour Confirms He Is Considering Touring New Album! David Gilmour has told Rolling Stone he is considering touring his new album (Expected in 2015) David said, when talking about his new album "It's coming along very well, There are some sketches that aren't finished, and some of them will be started again. There's a few months' work in it yet. I'm hoping to get it out this following year. Then I'm hoping to do an old man's tour, not a 200-date sort of thing." Gilmour could easily fill arenas, but he plans to play smaller venues, similar to what he did on his most recent tour, in 2006. "There haven't been many discussions about the tour," he says. "But places like Radio City Music Hall sound like the right sort of vibe for me."

Raphael Ravenscroft Passes Sadly another Pink Floyd associate has gone to the great gig in the sky. Sax player Raphael Ravenscroft, who played Tenor Sax on 'The Final Cut' and toured with David Gilmour on his 'About Face' Tour in 1984 has died of a suspected heart attack at the age of 60. Raphael was probably best known for the instrumental segment of Gerry Rafferty's 'Baker Street' and it's said that he was still earning about £80,000 a year in royalties from his part in Rafferty's hit single more than 30 years after the song was released in 1978. The clip below features Raphael playing sax on David's 'There's No Way Out Of Here' at the Hammersmith Odeon in 1984.

Roger Waters Sings For The Bertrand Russell Tribunal On Palestine In a Jim Ladd interview back in May 2012 Roger said "I have written a song over the last few months which may well prove to be the middle, well not the middle but the starting point for a new album, my first one in 20 years, which is actually called "If I Had Been God". Roger is understood to have rehearsed the new song several times at sound checks on his 2013 tour (the song being known as 'If I Had Been God (Lay Down Jerusalem)' and various snippets have been seen around the web. However, on 25 September Roger performed the song in full for the special session of the Bertrand Russell Tribunal On Palestine held at the premises of the European Parliament in Brussels.

The Endless River Officially Announced

Finally the long awaited details of Pink Floyd's new album have been released.

The Endless River has as its starting point the music that came from the 1993 Division Bell sessions, when David Gilmour, Rick Wright and Nick Mason played freely together at Britannia Row and Astoria studios. This was the first time they had done so since the ‘Wish You Were Here’ sessions in the seventies. Those sessions resulted in The Division Bell, the band’s last studio album.

In 2013 David Gilmour and Nick Mason revisited the music from those sessions and decided that the tracks should be made available as part of the Pink Floyd repertoire. It would be the last time the three of them would be heard together. The band have spent the last year recording and upgrading the music,using the advantages of modern studio technology to create The Endless River.

The Endless River is a tribute to Rick Wright, whose keyboards are at the heart of the Pink Floyd sound. It is a mainly instrumental album with one song, ‘Louder Than Words’, (with new lyrics by Polly Samson), arranged across four sides and produced by David Gilmour, Phil Manzanera, Youth and Andy Jackson.

The new album comes in several formats:

USA - STANDARD CD / DOUBLE VINYL / CD & BLU-RAY / CD & DVD

UK - STANDARD CD / DOUBLE VINYL / CD & BLU-RAY / CD & DVD

GERMANY - STANDARD CD / DOUBLE VINYL / CD & BLU-RAY / CD & DVD

CANADA - STANDARD CD / DOUBLE VINYL /CD & BLU-RAY / CD & DVD
